    10.2.X.? Should be a patchset not an upgrade.  The readme for the patch will have detailed installation instructions.

    Also, if you've never applied an Oracle patch before, make sure you practice in development / test environment first!

    Not only practice but get in the habit of writing down/documenting your own step-by-step guide.

    This way, when it comes time: you will greatly reduce surprises.
